Selena Kimball is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Working primarily in large-scale collage, she uses printed documentary evidence, physically re-working visual histories into constructed surfaces and installations. This process of taking apart and putting back together is a search for what is hidden in both the content and the appearance of these printed histories. She has exhibited at Feature, Inc., Entropia Gallery, The Estonian National Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Katonah Museum, The Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Bucharest. She was awarded residency fellowships at the MacDowell colony and the Millay Colony, and most recently received the Pollock-Krasner grant. Her work has been reviewed in The Boston Globe, The Frankfurter Zeitung, and The New York Observer.

Selena Kimball earned her BFA in sculpture from The Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA in combined media from Hunter College. She has collaborated for over a decade with visual anthropologist Alyssa Grossman on films that have been shown at documentary film festivals internationally. Her published work can be seen in the collage novel "The Dreaming Life of Leonora de la Cruz", which was produced together with art historian Agnieszka Taborska (Gdansk 2004, slowo/obraz teryrtoria; New York 2007, Midmarch Arts Press; Paris 2007, Édition Interférences).  Their most recent book “The Unfinished Life of Phoebe Hicks” was published by slowo/obraz teryrtoria in 2013. She is Assistant Professor in the School of Art, Media + Technology at Parsons, the New School for Design.
